So, we are certain that Halo Infinite will be making its way into the showcase event.
However, that isn’t all. Xbox now has 15 Xbox Game Studios, which means that the company is on the venture to release more games on the platform. Almost a week ago, Microsoft made a placeholder Twitter account for Fable. It has made enthusiasts of the franchise wonder whether Microsoft will be announcing another Fable game after 3 years.
Microsoft also teased Hellblade II during the Xbox Series X unveiling last year, so we can assume that we will get to know more about this during this year’s event. And, there will almost certainly be some news about how previous games will be transitioned to the next-generation hardware. In addition to this, enthusiasts are also expecting some news regarding Perfect Dark or Banjo-Kazooie at the event.
Whatever Microsoft may have planned for the Xbox showcase event, we can’t wait to hear it. Microsoft has already promised some new gameplay, optimizations and even new games from Xbox Games Studios companies for the Xbox Series X.
